School Profile

Our Principal

Communication and collaboration are key ingredients to the success of our students. Our teachers use a variety of formats, such as newsletters, notes, phone calls, email, and conferences, to keep you informed about your child’s progress and classroom happenings. Please check your child’s backpack often so that you do not miss out on important news. - Melisa Rivera
